MARCH: Go with the flow

mars 03, 2019

March is a bit of a paradox. It signals the start of spring, but it's the month of sudden downpours. After the outpourings of love in February and the flower power to come in April, it is often pale by comparison. And yet, March gives us the perfect excuse not to plan anything, to just live and simply go with the flow. We'll help you a bit, in case you don't know how we do things!

Scoop: you're not Wonder Woman

Going with flow means not running around after all those things that ruin your daily life but provide you with reassurance. Admit that you end up getting caught up in the game (or "trap") of trying to be all things to all people. Fulfilled woman, super mum, sensitive lover, social media junkie, Sunday athlete... or not, and the list just gets longer and longer! Let's face it, you can't be everywhere all the time, so why not give up trying to keep all the balls in the air (reduce your stress levels) now and again or for good, and just go with the flow. Conserve your energy for getting things done rather than trying to control everything. Random isn't all bad...sometimes!

Take your kids, for example

"Mind that puddle, you'll make your shoes dirty!", "Mind out, it's a bit too high for you!", "Yes, you do have to eat all your vegetables!"... We bet that a lot of these things just spring automatically to your lips, right? What if we were to follow the example of our kids who are innocent (most of the time) and intrepid (too often)? Going with the flow on an everyday basis means freeing ourselves from those knee-jerk reactions that we're stuck with and yet still don't make us happy. Whereas children are open to everything that life has to offer, including making mistakes!

Learning to go with the flow on an everyday basis

Going with the flow on an everyday basis means changing the way you see the things that worry you, stress you out or scare you. Did you arrive late at the office this morning? It's quite likely that nobody even noticed. Was your baby's food a bit too hot? You're not perfect. If you feel that some situations stress you out, try to find ways to go with the flow more. Focus on your breathing, imagine yourself in the shade of the coconut trees, give your baby's teddy a cuddle... Easier to say than to do, but the main thing is to practise going with the flow a bit every day. No more being wound up like a coiled spring, now you're as cool as a cucumber!

Briefly, in March, no pressure, chill out and recharge your batteries in time for summer!

Size guide

1. WHICH SIZE SHOULD I CHOOSE?

Our baby carriers are currently available in two sizes : T1 and T2. The fabric is stretchy enough to adapt as best as possible to both the wearer's and the baby's bodies. 

Generally, T1 suits sizes from S to M and T2 suits larger sizes.


Important: The fabric will soften and relax during use and as the baby grows. It’s normal that the baby carrier feel a little snug during the first use.

And since each body is unique, you can try it quietly at home to see if it suits you and if not, you can send it back for a refund ;)

2. THE SIZE IS TOO SMALL - BABY IS TOO SQUASHED

You may experience a feeling of tightness but the goal is ultimately that the baby is held firmly against you and does not move, just like with a classic carrier. For the newborn position, depending on the morphology of both the baby and the wearer, it can quickly become restrictive. You can therefore place them into the sitting position early by respecting their physiological position and the natural spacing of their hips. The seating position will feel less snug as the legs will be out.

Also, do not hesitate to flatten the fabric on your back to leave more on the front.

Important: The fabric will soften and relax during use and as the baby grows.

3. THE SIZE IS TOO LARGE - BABY IS TOO LOW

Indeed your child should not be too low, or at least the position should remain as comfortable for them as it is for you and your baby should remain within reach for kisses. If this is not the case, you can make a loop with the fabric on each shoulder. You can make a loop by twisting the side of the scarf and reversing the hems so that the fabric is shortened and the baby is slightly lifted (see video section).

You can also wash your sling (30° or Warm setting in the washing machine) so that the fabric shrinks back to the original size (the product cannot be reimbursed once washed).

Don't miss out !
